Base 2 completed their road safety training on Friday, 9th June. Mrs Onions was very impressed with their knowledge of finding safe places to cross, looking for driveways and crossing at junctions. Everyone received a certificate and a bag of road safety goodies!
We celebrated with an afternoon of fun road safety activities, such as making traffic light biscuits, designing a new high vis vest, imaginative play with the cars and figures and sequencing road safety pictures to tell a story. We would like to thank our parent helpers for being so patient and helpful. They also received a bag of road safety goodies and flowers.
Well done everyone!
Well done to our winners of the JRSO competition to design a new Summer outfit for Strider! They each received a bag full of road safety goodies.
Our new Junior Road Safety Officer for P6 next year is Holly from Base 8. She completed the application form and interview process with great confidence.
Harrison Craig from Base 2 received an award for the most enthusiastic language learner in P1-4 on Tuesday, 23rd May. Miss Atkinson and Harrison attended the ceremony which was held at Airdrie FC. We were entertained by 2 school choirs and a ribbon dance! Well done Harrison Base 2 are very proud of you.
You will find Base 2 children out and about in the community learning about road safety as part of the Child Pedestrian Training Scheme. So far we have learned how to check for cars moving in driveways, to cross on a straight part of the road, not diagonally and to move away from parked cars if we can. A big thank you to our lovely parent helpers too.
Camembear is helping Base 2 to learn French. He will be visiting everyone’s house to see how Scottish people live and to practise French. He has his own suitcase and he has a diary to fill out each day. So far he has been swimming, dancing, playing football and been to a party! He is loving his stay in Scotland.
